  1. Welcome to The Forum. JKK is right. The best place to find the value of a coin is to see what examples have sold for in the (recent) past. Sites like Ebay, Stack's-Bowers, Heritage, or Great Collections are the best place to start.
  2. It amazes me sometimes the prices people will pay for common coins, just to have the highest scoring registry set possible. (Nothing wrong with it - just not something I would do.) At the time of that sale (2008) there were only 15 graded MS68RD. (Not sure if that is just PCGS, or both services - the listing does not specify) Coin sold for $4025, including juice.. Fast forward to June, 2019. There are now 24 with that grade at PCGS, and 13 at NGC. The price realized in that auction (different coin from the above example, but same grade) is $168. Unfortunately, that particular coin had been purchased six years earlier for $1410. That is the problem with high grade moderns that are purchased for moon money:There is always a chance that another, or many other, coin(s) will be certified at that same grade or higher at some point in the future, and that really expensive coin suddenly loses much of its original "value."
  3. Wow. This person wasted an awful lot of money, if he/she was the person who sent these in to be graded. Shame.
  4. Welcome to the forum. Do you have a link to the auction in which the 1984D Lincoln sold for $4000? That is almost 6 times NGC retail for that year/mint mark in the highest grade (so far) - MS68, so I am wondering what was so special about that particular coin. Thanks. I really like the color on your, coin, by the way.
  5. Here are the criteria for NGC to designate a Full Head: three leaves in Liberty’s hair must be totally visible; the hairline along Liberty’s brow must be complete; the ear indentation must be evident.
  6. In my opinion, the toning will not have a negative effect on the grade. I am not a VAM guy, but, if I were you, I would do some checking into the designation for that coin. That die crack should make finding the particular variety fairly easy, and it may add a bit to the value to have it noted by NGC, or at least in your listing, when you go to sell them. Click here for the link to VAMWorld I went ahead and looked myself, and it looks like VAM-7A, which is the key variety for that date/mm. It does not appear to be a variety that NGC will attribute, but I would still put it in my listing when I sold it, if I were you. See if this looks like your coin.CLICK ME. Maybe jgrinz or someone else can confirm this.
  7. It is just post-mint damage, caused by contact with other coins and other different objects. In other words, it's a spender. Welcome to the forum.
  8. That looks severe enough to get a "details" grade, so you may want to check past auction prices for "VF Details" graded coins on a few sites like Great Collections, Heritage Auctions, etc., to determine approximate value. This should help you decide if it is worth it to you to have it graded.
